"New Resort Opening May 1 2011" NOW LARIMAR ~ PUNTA CANA

Recommended Posts

Oh no JB, I hadn't realized you sent your STD's already.  I am sure all of this will work out, and if it doesn't get better we all have several months left and can make other decisions.  My TA said that she will contact her AmResorts rep as well to see what is going on. 

 

MoniWoni:Thanks for the email from Erin.  It did ease my mind a bit.  You are right in saying that there are those negative Nancy's out there who always post the worst.  The other thing I guess we should remember is that a lot of people will not post positive reviews, only negative.  I sure hope this is the case.  I remember staying at Couples Swept Away in Jamacia a few years ago and reading a ton of negative reviews.  It was hands down the nicest AI resort we have ever stayed at! I couldn't believe anyone would say a negative thing about it.  I hope that is what is happening here. 

 

DeeSanders:One of my FI's clients stayed at Paridisus last May for a wedding. He said it was awesome and the only negative was that they were hard partiers and the resort was a bit reserved.  He also said he only stayed for 5 days and felt like it was a bit pricey...

 

This will all work out, it does make me nervous though!

I will let you ladies know as soon as I hear something!  I agree that we all have time for the resort to get it together.  Also that 9 out of 10 times you only write a review when you have something negative to say!! Fingers crossed that this all changes by the time we have our weddings there.  Most of the bad reviews were about food and that is too be expected.  I would say 99% of the time I stay at an all inclusive the food is nothing spectacular and I hate to say the last time I was in the Dominican I did get sick from the food too!  It was 4 years ago so I was hoping it was because it just became a popular tourist attraction!  I think that everything will be okay and we will all have a great time!  As far as getting a hold of the wedding coordinator???  I don't know what to say.  I haven't tried to get in contact with them in a while just because I haven't needed to but I know when we were trying to finalize my contract my TA did write a letter of complaint and got a response right away and then they were right on top of it. weddings.nolpc@nowresorts.com is the most recent email address that I have sent to and had good response time on???  I do not know if I should text my two clients that are staying there about the reviews we read?? Or just see what they have to say???? I do not want to ruin their trip but I also don't want them to sugarcoat it because I already have my wedding booked there!!!!

Sarah.... I can handle waiting untill they return:)  I agree all inclusive resorts never have GREAT food!  I'm from New York "the food capital"..... I dont expect fine dining just decent food, sun & fun!

I'm just looking forward to my wedding & surrounding myself with family and friends.... and leaving it in gods hands to do the rest!  (I'm not crazy religous, but it's the truth)

I was reading a bunch of the posts on Facebook and saw that there was a guy name Rod on there that works on the property.  His email is: rgahr@amresorts.com Maybe you should email him about not getting a response from the wedding coordinator.  Maybe he can get some kind of response for you!!

Acutie, Just wanted to give you a heads-up on air rate. I checked out Continental Air website and for our week we are being quoted $428 nonstop from Newark. Obviously the port would be a factor on price but it might be worth checking out... I'm not sure if you got prices for that yet but when we price it withought it being a package it's actually cheaper! yay! It would be $1226 per person for 7 nights! I'm getting pumped again! Oh and Moniwoni is right if you have Facebook check out the Now Larimar page, more people recently posted comments on their stay at the resort!

I will check out their facebook page later today.  That makes me feel better that some good reviews are around...it will only get better too.Hopefully at least.

 

JB:I will send out your check tonight or in the morning.  Thanks so much for picking those up for me!  I checked prices again today for flights and I am sooooo jealous of those prices you are getting.  The cheapest we can get right now is $780, and we don't have the option of direct flights.  It will take at least 12 hours to get there with one stop. That's what I get for living in the West.  I will keep checking, hopefully it goes down a little in the fall.
